Restless in Corona times

I am not sure if restlessness is what I can call this sensation I feel right now. It is a condition arising from the thought that I am not doing things that are meaningful or on par with my capability. The challenge is not on par with my capacity. This is not a boast, but truly, what I experience. I would have loved a job in which I ‘thought’ for a living, as Daniel Kahneman would say. Thinking and making connections, applying theories to various scenarios – these are things I like to do.

What is the connection between this and Corona? Corona virus gives me an excuse to not do much. Who am I giving the excuse to? My own self.

Another thought I had just now was that if the human race was to be seriously affected by the Corona virus, it would really be an anticlimax to the whole human enterprise.
